Really enjoyed our stay at ‘daisy’
The location was perfect, so peaceful and plenty to do within a short drive.
Had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Lamb and Flag in Rhayader.
The pod has everything you can ask for.
Highly recommend and will definitely be staying again.

My girlfriend had been trying to convince me to stay in a clamping pod for over a year and finally I buckled. I thought it would be a small cold shed but I was very wrong. This is basically a posh hobbit house. The kitchen, furniture and decoration is very high end. Great location 5 mins drive from nearest town. Would 100% stay again!

Lovely place, beautiful Welsh countryside. Accommodation was perfect, lovely and warm inside which is what we needed getting out of the hot tub on a snowy evening. Our dog enjoyed running around the garden which was enclosed.
Just perfect, walking distance to the local village, everything was easy and we felt very welcomed! We will come again for sure! Thank you hosts.

Daisy glamping pod was amazing and just what we needed for a few days relaxing.
The pod has everything you need and more.
All fixtures and fittings are to a high standard, full kitchen with all appliances needed, lots of plug sockets and excellent WiFi (needed with 2 teenagers). Hot tub is a great addition. The fenced off garden meant the dog could be out safe in our knowledge he couldn’t escape.
The welcome pack is a lovely idea meaning you don’t need to worry about bringing the small things such as dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid.
The local town is a short drive away where to you can pick up anything extra needed.
There are several nice walks and visits to dam’s that can be reached which add to the magic of your stay.
Definitely will be returning.
Perfect weekend trip

Dishwasher was a lovely added bonus! Would 100% recommend and return! Good value for money split between the 4 of us that went!
